Homemade Bread

So since January we’ve been making homemade bread to save money on lunches. We found a very simple recipe and as long as you have a Bosch mixer or one you can borrow it’s super easy.

101/2 cups white bread flour or wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp salt
3 rounded tbsp quick rise yeast
3 tbsp liquid lecithin
4 cups hot tap water

Preheat over to  350*

Mix dry ingredients. Add lecithin and water. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry add more water. Dough should be very sticky. Mix for 5 minutes. (do not add flour to the dough after it has finished mixing) Spray counter and pans with pam. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let raise for 25 minutes. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes. This recipe makes four loaves of bread.

David also likes to add jalapeños and chunks of cheddar cheese then sprinkle cheese on top of loaf as it cooks.
